Arsène Schrauwen
by Olivier Schrauwen

In 1947, the author’s grandfather, Arsène, traveled across the ocean to a mysterious, dangerous jungle colony at the behest of his cousin. Together they would build something deemed impossible: a utopia of modernity, in the wilderness — but not before Arsène falls in love with his cousin’s wife, Marieke. Whether delirious from love or a fever-inducing jungle virus, Arsène’s loosening grip on reality is mirrored by the reader’s uncertainty of what is imagined or real by Arsène. This first full-length graphic novel from the critically-acclaimed Olivier Schrauwen is an engrossing, sometimes funny, slightly surreal and often beautiful narrative.

"Jumpin’ jacksnipes!" Duckburg’s richest tycoon is on the hunt for legendary square eggs — and he’s bringing Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie along! It’s our second complete, chronological book of Duck adventures by internationally celebrated fan favorite Don Rosa — following in the footsteps of Disney legend Carl Barks with his own distinctive style! Famed for his prizewinning Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, Rosa wrote and drew two decades’ worth of ripping Duck yarns and is among the world’s most beloved modern cartoonists. Star stories in our second Rosa book include “Return to Plain Awful,” Rosa’s sequel to Barks’ “Lost in the Andes.” Then, in “His Majesty McDuck,” Scrooge beats the IRS by seceding from the Union… only to have his new country colonized by the Beagle Boys! Plus more! Presented with a rich archive of Rosa’s cover art and behind-the-scenes factoids, these Duckburg epics are getting a definitive, comprehensive North American edition for the very first time — at a bargain price worthy of Scrooge himself!

Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting my favorite comic artist in the world, Jaime Hernandez. Jaime has been writing a comic called Love and Rockets for the last 30+ years with his brothers Gilberto and Mario. Gilberto’s stories focus primarily on a fictional Latin American town called Palomar, while Jaime’s stories are centered around Maggie and Hopey, two queer Latina punks growing up outside of LA. Being able to see queer women of color represented in his comics when I was a teen had a huge influence on my sense of place of place in the world (and that there was a place for me in it). His drawing and inking style have also had a huge influence of my own.

Jaime started drawing when he was in the single digits (age-wise) and never stopped. As far as I can tell, he has never supported himself off of anything BUT his art which is amazing unto itself, especially for an INDIE comic artist. Jaime’s story gives me faith that is it possible to have success as an artist without making creative or political compromises. Hearing him speak about his work yesterday made me want to sit down and reread all of it, and then get back to drawing my own stories.

What an awesome experience! I am so jealous!
